That is what CVSNT does by default.  Either:
* your network is broken, eg:
  + your workstations are not members of a domain
  + your client and server pc's are not time synchronised
  + you have no working DNS
* you have used 'cvs login'
* you have changed the default CVSNT Server settings to something that
doesn't work


Simplest install procedure:
* install new windows server 2008 r2 domain controller
* install cvs suite 2009 (server)
* reboot
* let wizard guide you to create repository
 (do not alter any other setings)
* install new windows 7 workstation (join domain)
* install cvs suite 2009 (client)
* reboot
* let wizard guide you to import/create sandbox, or
* start cvs suite studio
* browse to server on left side
* browse to folder on right side
* drag folder from right to left to import
* drag folder from left to right to create sandbox

If you already have windows installed the whole process should take
about 30 minutes.

If you have old CVSNT installations and you've fiddled with settings or
experimented with 'login' then those settings wont ever disappear
unfortunately.  You could delete the registry keys HKLM\Software\Cvs or
use a new PC...
